ATASCADERO, Calif. — Another monolith has been spotted.

This time, it’s in southern California according to USA TODAY.

The monolith on a hiking trail in Atascadero was first reported by KEYT-TV and The Atascadero News.

The Atascadero News reports that it was located atop Pine Mountain and unlike the monolith found in southern Utah, this one was not attached to the ground and could easily be pushed over.

The Utah monolith was first spotted by a crew counting Bighorn Sheep.
